Altered Carbon Season 2 Review
The ending of season one left no doubts - Takeshi Kovacs lives, and we will see more of his adventures in the next season. Thirty years after the Bancroft case, another Meth locates Kovacs and offers him a job and a new sleeve. Once again, Takeshi would have a chance to see Quellcrist Falconer. A new sleeve means the new look of the main character, and a different actor is playing the leading role. That important story component allows TV series showrunners to introduce new actors or actresses for the leading role, which has some Doctor Who vibe. Something not so familiar in popular TV series, even those sci-fi.

Sex Education Season 2 Review
I was not sure what to expect from the new second season of Netflix’s Sex Education. At first sight, the series setting looks like a teen series from the 80s and 90s, but in reality, it is likely aiming at adults as a prime audience. The first season was a well-tailored comedy/drama about conflicts, growing up, being an adult, and a parent. Although the primary theme is sex, it is not in any way vulgar or, what would even worse, embarrassing. It was not the best tv series ever but a good one which I enjoyed.
